    You picked-up a very honest looking Model 1898 Krag in nice condition. Enjoy!

    I can't find a photo of a compete model 1888 rod-bayonet, online. There are some implements that function with the small end of the rod.
    So, I imagine there is a small thread or ribbing on the...

    Not inverted.

    A quick search of known parts dealers would indicate a loose trapdoor ramrod-bayonet is no easy or cheap matter to find or replace. It does not appear to be reproduced either.

    The rifle you are considering, in addition to having the latch on backwards, has a rod that is not a model 1888 trapdoor bayonet.
    There appear to be six areas on the 'odd' rod that have knurling.

    Not my area of expertise and I have no dog in the fight, but there is something very unusual about the rod on that trapdoor.

    The rod-bayonet 'tip' normally looks like this attached photo. (I am...

    It is a rod-bayonet rifle, but appears to have some type of custom 'rod' (and not a bayonet-rod) in place?

    IMHO - The metal of the OP's Steven's/Savage actually looks rather good. The 'case-color' on these shotguns was never very deep even when factory new.
    Any surface rust or dried crud on the 'blued'...

    I can offer no answer, but those are some mighty interesting sight-parts!

    If I understand correctly, the OP obtained a nicer model 1896 Krag some time ago. We have not been shown photos of the new acquisition.

  12. Need front barrel-band for Danish Artillery carbine

    I have a 'sportered' Danish Artillery carbine. Someone shortened its forearm and discarded the front barrel-band.
    My Danish Krag was built in 1896 as an infantry rifle and was modified into a...

    With currency inflation, Covid, and other World Events, our experience on the value of many items from antique firearms to houses is totally upended.

    That appears to be a nice U.S. Model 1896...

    FWIW - The model 1892 Krag rear-sight uses the same screw combination as the model 1896 sight.
    The rear screw is short with a very thin head. The front screw is long with a thick head.

    Well it smells to me that it was set-up to wear one of these!

    The Redfield and Pacific 'no-drill' receiver sights for the Krag made use of the 'magazine cut-off hole' for mounting.

    Mike - Danish and Norwegian handguards are even rarer than U.S. ones and will not work on a U.S. Krag.

    Since your rifle's stock and barrel were cut-down for 'Hunting', there is little need to go...

    All U.S. Krag rifles and carbines (as well as sight models) have the same hole spacing.

    The various Krag rear-sight models require specific handguard hole-openings and mounting screws.

    Make sure that the fine rivet, that holds the follower to the carrier-arm, is totally flush and not sticking out a bit and dragging.

    There were changes to the follower and carrier-arm during model...

    The 1903 rear-sight collar cross-pin is normally rather hard to find. The metal finish kind of hides it.

    I've circled the areas, on your photos, where I think I see the pin.

    The front-sight base appears to have been freshly drilled and the blade pin looks to be an over-size replacement.

    It does not look like arsenal work. (Burred & apparent punch mark)

    My memory is not always trustworthy on these things!

    On one the distance measured .416", on the second it measured .445".
